In Joshua 2:1 most translators describe Rahab as a harlot. My opinion is she was an innkeeper. What do you think?

The commentators' opinions vary, but the consensus seems to be that, whatever her background, she performed a good deed by helping Joshua's two spies, Caleb and Phinehas.

I think Rahab was an innkeeper because of the next:

zuun = nourish -> zoonaah = innkeeper
Compare:
kuum = arise-> koomaah = height
